Meet Alex Armour, Jan Schakowsky’s (D, IL-09) CoS.
…judging from his Twitter account (H/T: The Campaign Spot) Armour despises and loathes the roughly 60-70% of the population* of the United States that had a problem with the Ground Zero Mosque. Extra points: Armour apparently also thinks that the expression of said problem demonstrates an ignorance of the purpose of the First Amendment, instead of it being what the First Amendment is for.

I Think This Means The Terrorists Have Won
This is a shot of the top of Google News right now. If korans are burned in Florida by some moron preacher, the terrorists will get new recruits. If the Ground Zero Mosque is moved in New York, the terrorists will get new recruits. In other words, we either bow to the demands and wishes of radical Islamists or else. This is madness. No. This | Read More »
You Cannot Win With These People
The Ground Zero Mosque Imam has decided to hold the nation hostage to his mosque. According to him in an interview with CNN, if we do not build the mosque at ground zero it will jeopardize our national security. If some nut in Florida burns korans? Our national security is hurt. If we don’t build a mosque? Our national security is hurt. Seriously? Oh, but | Read More »
By Faith: I Am Proud of Franklin Graham
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had | Read More »
The Associated Press Takes Sides Again
Consistent with the operations of the 29% fringe political elites who have no problem with the Ground Zero mosque, the Associated Press has ordered a full stop on usage of “Ground Zero Mosque.” We should continue to avoid the phrase “ground zero mosque” or “mosque at ground zero” on all platforms. (We’ve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other | Read More »
Flaming Hypocrisy and the Convenient Constitutionalists of the Fringe Political Elite
For weeks on end the political elite in this country and their sycophants have told us we must support the Ground Zero Mosque because our founding principles demand it. This fringe group, no larger than the birthers or 9/11 Truthers and smaller than the mainstream group called the “tea party movement” the fringe political elite has labeled fringe, are not afraid to tell you that | Read More »
Howard Dean… wants the mosque moved.
The audio is here – he’s definitely of the opinion that while the backers of the Ground Zero Mosque have the right to build one on their own property (the mainstream position), they should show some delicacy and consideration for national feelings on the matter and move the mosque somewhere else (which is also the mainstream position). Of course, being Howard Dean he later called | Read More »
The Elite Become Fringe. We Will Remember Come November
“The same people who have dedicated the entire year to proclaiming the tea party movement ‘fringe’ suddenly find themselves fringe.” I’ve written about this before. Let me pretty much repeat myself because it is vitally relevant here. I cannot tell you the number of reporters at major networks and newspapers who will, in private moments, admit there is a real bias in the media. That | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi Joins the Fringe Mosquerade
Ladies and gentlemen, we have come through the looking glass. Tonight on KCBS radio in San Francisco, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi began calls for investigations into opponents of the Ground Zero mosque. Aligning herself with the fringe — a group of people no larger than those who think 9/11 was an inside job and those who think Barack Obama is a foreign born | Read More »
A theory on 2010 candidates and the Ground Zero Mosque.
It is as follows: the Democratic candidates that come out wholeheartedly in support of President Obama’s position – whatever it actually ends up being – are the ones who must rely on the President’s largess in order to have any hope to survive. This is why we see Alexi Giannoulias* and Lee Fisher** echoing the President’s language in Illinois, while Harry Reid*** in Nevada does | Read More »
Sensibilities and the Ground Zero Mosque
Here’s me on John King USA last night talking about this issue.
The Democrats’ Disaster: More Americans Question Barack Obama’s Birth Story Than Support the Ground Zero Mosque
UPDATE: I’ve looked at more numbers. Consider this: the percentage of people who think 9/11 was an inside job is equal to the percentage of people who think the Ground Zero mosque is a good idea. —– “Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a man whose first reaction to the Time Square bombing plot was to blame people upset about Obamacare passing, has ceded being the face of | Read More »
Reid’s new Angle on 9/11 mosque.
Sharron Angle went off on Harry Reid on the subject of the Ground Zero Mosque this morning – she takes the position that while people have the right to build a mosque there, they should show some delicacy of their own and build it somewhere else – and Greg Sargent was practically licking his chops in response. He was of the opinion that making opposition | Read More »
Obama Chooses Sides In Favor of the Ground Zero Mosque
Last night, as part of a Ramadan celebration, President Obama waded into the controversy over the Cordoba Initiative mosque within sight of Ground Zero. In so doing, he unambiguously chose sides with those who see this deliberate provocation as a positive good. It is unsurprising, given what we already know about him, that President Obama would decline to support using government power to block the | Read More »
The Idiocy of Barack Obama’s Mosque Support
Barack Obama last night came out forcefully in favor of the Ground Zero Mosque. He said he believed our nation’s founding principles demanded it. Really? Which of those founding principles? This man was a law professor. Surely he understands that our founding principles do not compel the President of the United States to support the specific act of an individual based on our founding principles. | Read More »
